Learn how to enjoy networking, make others feel at ease talking to you, how to enter and exit a group of people, and how to build meaningful connections. You'll learn different networking techniques with online classes and then practice these in virtual environments.
We combine online classes with realistic practice for a unique learning approach. If you have a VR headset, you can practice what you learn in VR scenarios.
You’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, slideshows and case studies through our online platform - available to access at any time.
